Mavis was born in Massachusetts in 1962. As a child, she was an avid reader. Later, she honed her creative side majoring in Theatre at Salem State College. While supporting herself and waiting for her big break, she became a "resident" and well-known bartender at a nightclub in Cambridge, MA.
Mavis has done several commercials and lots of extra work, but her creative juices were still flowing, so she turned to another one of her hidden talents: writing. These efforts culminated in several manuscripts, the latest of which is Mavis Bites.
Currently, Mavis lives in Massachusetts with her long-term partner.
